This book is not really written for kids to read. It's a book by an adult explaining how he used different metaphors and stories to explain different chess tricks to kids. It also doesn't start with the basics, so if you are expecting a primer on chess, this is not it. I thought I was buying a book for my 8 year old, and didn't realize that it was a book for an adult to (possibly) teach a kid chess. However, even if I had bought it for that purpose, it's not a very good book -- the explanations are conversational rather than instructive. I'm not sure who the other reviewers are, and whether they have actually read the book.

Really confusing book. If you want a book to teach you the basics of chess, this is not it. There are more references to aliens and waterfights which makes it more confusing than informative.

Not really for children. more for parents to help teach their children. I was looking for a book my 3 boys would enjoy readiung themselves.
